Add a new waypoint to Guide On feature ( Guide VIA POINT)

This feature is common in every gps navigation software: http://www.roadmapgps.com/glossary/vi...


Sometimes I have Guide on turned on towards one point. And then, I want to create a simple route to get to my destination through the other point or more points. So maybe it would be nice to add a new position to point/guiding mini-menu. Now it looks like that:


- Compass


- Guide On


- Navigate to


I`m thinking about:


- Guide On


- Guide via this point ( this position will only appear when there is already a Guiding On turned on)


- Navigate to


- Compass


When we will add a new point to GUIDE VIA, I presume the new temporary track should be created, and turned Guide On for this track.

Very good idea. Especially useful for offline users like me.

Yeah, but it looks like nobody else cares

I`ve already started a thread `interim target when you use the guiding feature with a similar question or idea. So I will support this one.

ah seems these topics are identical aren`t they? In this case, I should merge them, no problem with this?


EDIT: ah my bad, sorry. Not exactly same. This is more focused on ability to create a additional waypoint when guided on single waypoint, where hike39`s topic is more on additional waypoint during a guiding along track ...

Here is another try to explain my idea. Let`s say I`ve created a route consisting out of 50 waypoints, numbered 1 to 50. When I turn on the guiding I will get the information the distance and direction to the next waypoint seen from my actual postion and to the waypoint 50. But I would like to have the possibility to define that I want to be guided first to waypoint 25 and, when I will have arrived there, then the destination should change automaticly to the end point of the route at waypoint 50.


Question to elmuSSo: Does that cover your idea too?

Not really, but I will support your idea, because I think I was also considering creating a thread for a similar idea. So lets talk about it there.

Hi.

I still miss this feature. Any possibilities to implement it?

I admit I would not use this often, but like many things when you need something like this you need it pretty bad.

I think it would be a good tool.
